“Look at the Old-Fashioned Fishing Boat!”

10 Jul

An old-fashioned fishing boat?!?

So, Boyd and I were doin’ our thing onboard Bushranger – I was caulking up top (as usual) and Boyd was working on the fittings – when I heard this quiet grunt of a laugh. I look up and Boyd has a big smile on his face.  Two boat enthusiasts were walking by when one commented to the other, “Just look at that old-fashioned fishing boat!”  Boyd glanced around to see what boat they were talking about, and guess what: they were looking at Bushranger! I guess that makes me a fishwife?!?…

Hey, the bimini is up!

Shade at last!

Last night, Boyd and I slipped slot “A” into fold “B”…

…and pieced together the big brown canvas that shades the top of the boat.  ….and, what a process!… lots of metal rods and zippers…

Believe it or not, each pole would fit only one way….and I think we got “the way” wrong 90% of the time. I learned how to juggle poles really well (that’s ‘juggle poles’, not ‘pole dance’, …?!?where IS your mind?!?)

…and, of course, we put the silly thing on backwards the first time around. At the end, I felt like the ‘the king of the world’ (reference the classic movie, Titanic, who’s path, I am determined, we will never follow)!

“I’m king of the world!”

      ….so, to summarize, I have improved by ‘stripping’ and now have improved my pole-balancing….hummmmm
